Tranquility Baseboard - the end of the beginning
D-day has approached, appeared briefly in our midst and is now receding at the steady rate of 24 hours a day. Five, a mere five, modules were sufficiently near finished to be presented by their owners at the SMRS exhibition. Due to a minor administrative oversight, they were exhibited in a manner not conducive to their full glory. Nonetheless they attracted considerable attention, not least by the deputy mayor, who had the honour of judging a winner. I did not expect mine to trouble the scorers, and was therefore not disappointed. And no, I haven’t cracked the sweepy-swirly problem yet.
At the exhibition review meeting last Friday, Phase Two was subsequently authorised. This will involve construction of run-round loops at either end of hopefully the full dozen modules, arranged in an L-shape, the whole to be exhibited next year in a suitably-enhanced position. I have volunteered to act as project coordinator, and have already identified a managing contractor. Or should that be a contract manager?
